The Daughters of Yalta by Catherine Grace Katz

The Churchills, Roosevelts, and Harrimans: A Story of Love and War


The Daughters of YaltaIt is close to the end of World War II, and Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin are meeting at Yalta to plan the transition to a post-war world. Roosevelt and Churchill were accompanied by three daughters, who were all noted for fierce family loyalty and political saavy. Kathleen Harriman, daughter of U.S. ambassador to the Soviet Union Averell Harriman, was a war correspondent and champion skier. Sarah Churchill, an actress-turned-RAF officer, was devoted to her brilliant father, who depended on her astute political mind. Roosevelt’s only daughter, Anna, chosen instead of her mother, Eleanor, to accompany the president to Yalta, arrived there as keeper of her father’s most damaging secrets. What roles did they play in determining the outcomes of this world-changing event? If you enjoy history examined through an uncommon lens, this is a wonderful book to read and discuss.
